's unbelievable. it gets better. when he was running against shannon o'brien in 2002 for governorship in massachusetts she had released her tax returns even though he had not released his. he went further and demanded her husband's tax returns. here's what a spokesman at the time around currently said. her handed aren't clean. she can't claim to disclosing anything until she discloses the returns of her husband. and added at the time, what is she hiding? which is of course the exact same question we can ask of mitt romney right now. if you demand the tax returns of all of your opponents you should have to give your tax returns. now when running for president of the united states of america and if you don't in the words of your own spokesperson what are you hiding? mitt, release your returns. release them now! okay. the reason he isn't, of course, he apparently has something gigantic to hide. when we come back, we'll keep talking about this. here is the amazing part of this. the role reversal. all of a sudden the democratic party is the strongest thing you've seen in your life and the

shannon o'brien, the democratic candidate started slamming over over gst, a steel company in kansas city that went bankrupt and failed that was when he started this conversation about i was no longer at bain capital. i was gone. prior to, that he had been much mushier about it and said it was a leave of absence for a certain time starting in 1999. and then during that subsequent two years, he made the decision while he was running the olympics he didn't want to come back to pain. then they had to start a long involved process of unwinding his investments, you know, private equity isn't like, you know, dish -- it's not look giebling where you own stock. the investment partnerships are very complicated. there are numerous partnerships, numerous funds. soft that takes, you know, months to unwind. that delayed it until another year or so mitt romney has refused to release, i think more than a year's worth of his tax returns there is a theory because his tax returns would show that he was paying a 15% carried interest rate whereas most americans on their sal
